Japanese Cemetery, Broome

(3.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Discover Broome’s interesting history, based on the exploits of the men and women who developed the pearling industry in the 1880s, by joining a guided tour of Japanese Cemetery. The riches taken from the sea did not come easily, and this historic cemetery is the resting place of more than 900 Japanese who lost their lives diving for the precious pearls. Many more were lost at sea, and the exact number of deaths is unknown. With its rows of simple headstones, the cemetery is a humble reminder of those intrepid immigrants who lived and died trying to conquer Australia’s seas.
